Since I'm such a hoarder of all sorts of left over bits and pieces from other projects, it's great to finally use some up in the Don't Throw it Away Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Hero Arts Stamp - Birthday Messages
Today I used up some of my scraps of ribbon on this card. I only needed a few supplies to make the card and it was one of the quickest cards I've made in a while. To start with I punched some circles out of the black panel and then punched out some slightly larger circles from scrap card. I covered these with a variety of ribbon scraps and stuck them behind the panel. Using a rotary cutter I trimmed the surplus pieces from the edges. Instead of having to fiddle around with positioning the sentiment stamp, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of card and positioned it as I stuck it to the back of the panel. Then it was just a matter of adding a gem and attaching the panel to the card with adhesive foam pads.
I've just been told by someone here that the card makes them think of planets and the 70s - I'm still trying to figure out if that's a good thing or not!
Hope you all have a lovely Easter:)
